The Convening of Thought Leaders in Health and Well-Being

This September 11-13th*, Vail Living Well is offering a unique opportunity for sixteen business leaders to take part in the VLW Forum on Optimum Health - an exceptional experience that convenes participants with renowned researchers in health and well-being, to collectively discuss, and experience, the latest developments and recent breakthroughs in evidence-based prevention.

This forum provides an opportunity for dialog on the latest research on Stress, Sleep, Physical Mobility, Cognitive Health, Ethics, and Mindfulness. Participants will gain key information for improving their workforce's health and sustainability, as well as their own improved physical and cognitive health and well-being.

By combining the collective experience of industry and government leaders, along with renowned researchers from Stanford, Harvard, University of Michigan and MIT, this forum provides a rare opportunity for generating new paths to longevity for individuals, the workforce, and for society. Meetings take place in small group sessions held at the Sonnenalp Hotel, one of Vail's premier luxury properties.
